the next decade. defense secretary panetta has not minced words about what that would mean. >> if a sequestration is allowed to go into effect it will be a disaster for national defense. >> reporter: according to panetta the new american strategy of pivoting away from the wars in iraq and afghanistan toward the pas civic and an emerging chinese superpower would come undone. >> all of thatan go to hell if this congress doesn't face up and deal with the issue of sequestration. >> reporter: in this letter to senators panetta warned that by the time sequestration was over the u.s. would have its smallest ground force since 1940, smallest navy since 1915, and smallest air force ever. a bleak prediction which ignores the quantum leap in weapons technology between then and now. as the president pointed out in the debates, no other country comes close. >> we spend more on our military than the next ten countries combined. china, russia, france, the united kingdom, you name it next test-- . >> reporter: sequestration would not change that according to the center for strategic and bu

, secretary panetta made it clear he will see it through this, sort of that one year or so he served. there is talk that secretary clinton's going to hang it up, and it's been remarkable how many people have stayed in the administration, traditionally, you would have found more people leaveing, but there's going to be a lot the turn over. on the hill, jill nelson is leaving, joe lieberman, todd akin who lost his race who will be leaving, roscoe bartlett who is going to be leaving. norm dixon and others. what the environment we look into congestionly? who will replace whom? and who will we see on the administration. >> i think the most important change on the hill in terms of the defense committee is that there were people from the vietnam generation who were like giants, people who could really move the chamber, like jack murtha, other victim, even john mccain who is timing out on the senate arms services committee. they are gradually being traded away, and replaced by people who may feel as strongly, but not as vocal and not as forceful. >> not as powerful either, and so they are no

. there's a lot we simply don't know about. >> the joint chiefs of staff chairman and leon panetta weren't told for nearly an hour. what's your view of this new timeline that's been made public? >> jennifer griffin of fox news has done a minute-by-minute comparison and people should look at it. it either shows that there were gross dare elections in communication of this or people were takenning a remarkably passive attitude. notification of this attack went out almost instantaneously yet the timeline contradict one another. there are gaffes and there are long periods, unexplained, where nothing was going on. i don't understand this. state departments were i've served, if the secretary of state were not told immediately one of his embassadors was under attack and in danger, he would fire the people who failed to tell him and it was be 24/7 for the secretary of state and white house until the americans in jeopardy were either protected or the situation was resolved. it's the passivity for hours and days and weeks after it that i find inexplicable. >> jennifer's timeline is astounding. tha

as tim geithner, leon panetta and now apparently eric holder is considering whether he will stay on as attorney general and ray lahood could be leaving the department of transportation. so is this shakeup as simple as cabinet members get burned out, need to step down and be replaced or is this a case of something more, julian? >> this is standard in every administration. these are very, very tough jobs. they are very demanding and taxing on a family. i think you see all-stars hillary clinton and tim geithner likely to leave. i think the interesting question, however, is whether the president will look to bring in republicans, people like chuck hagel, colin powell potentially in some of these positions and folks from the business industry, people like president of the xm bank and even michael bloomberg. the real thing i think we want to look for is will the president signal different directions by trying to bring in some republicans and people from the business community as well. >> there have been peripheral discussions whether mitt romney would be among those. is that realistic

of state hillary clinton. secretary of defense leon panetta was also planning on leaving. now with a vacancy also at the cia, which, remember, is running our war right now, that could lead to some disruption especially because there's also that investigation of what happened in benghazi going on. >> i want to ask you about that because petraeus was set to self in the cia's involvement in benghazi this week. now he's not expected to. his replacement is, but that's not -- republicans are not happy about that. >> that's unlikely to be good enough for a lot of members of congress. peter king saying he wants to speak to petraeus. on "this week" this morning i'll speak to the vice chairman saxby chambliss. do they still want to hear from david petraeus himself? we'll see what he says. >> on the fiscal cliff, the tax hikes that will go into effect on january 1 if congress and the president can't cut a deal, the president is saying, i want to raise taxes on rich people. the republicans have come out and said, no go. do you see any pathway to a deal here? >> there's going to have to be

relationship with congress. if you look at who served in this job before, leon panetta and petraeus, one thing they have in common is that they both were very, very well regarded on capitol hill. their word was basically gold up there. and if they said something was happening or not happening, or that it would be resolved or gotten to the bottom of, members on both sides of the aisle pretty much took that for granted. so you'd want people that could fulfill that. former congresswoman harman would probably fit into that category, very well respected and a very well known voice on intelligence and military issues. i think the question would be whether she would want to come back from her job heading the woodrow wilson center so soon after she basically quit the congress. john brennan, the president's counterterrorism advisor, would be another choice that i think would probably be very easily confirmed on capitol hill. however, the problem is the president has really come to rely on brennan as his right hand man throughout his presidency on all the issues of counterterrorism that arise, and those
